Good-bye 2015. Hello 2016!

Good-bye 2015. Hello 2016!

Over the past few weeks, I have been reflecting on 2015. For me, it was a year of big change. I left a career of eight years that was leaving me exhausted and unfulfilled to focus on my self-care and to cultivate the things in my life that feed my soul. I knew at the...

Legs-Over-a-Chair

Legs-Over-a-Chair

The energy this time of year is exciting and joyous, but can also be draining and heavy. Between wrapping gifts, baking cookies, and visiting loved ones it is easy to let your yoga practice slide. My plan is to keep things simple through doing no-fuss restorative yoga poses. Legs-Over-a-Chair does not require any fancy props; just somewhere to elevate your legs. It soothes the lower back and hips, refreshes the legs, and provides a gentle boost of circulation to the upper body. It is especially delicious after a long day on your feet, after a flight, or if you are generally fatigued.

Blueberry Mango Green Smoothie

There is nothing like Newfoundland wild blueberries. I lived away for almost 7 years and it wasn’t until I returned home did I realize how perfectly sweet and flavourful they are. I can’t eat them without flashing back to being a little girl picking blueberries in the marshy areas practically in my backyard. I remember how peaceful it was being out there with my friends.

Be Gentle With Yourself

Be Gentle With Yourself

Our lives are filled with to-dos, often a result of so many people depending on us, whether it be our kids, pets, partner, parents, coworkers, or any other person whose needs seem to be more important than our own. In our state of giving to others, we put our own self-care on the back burner…

What is Restorative Yoga?

What is Restorative Yoga?

I have practiced yoga for years and find deep peace in moving through the poses as it allows me to feel free and strong in my body and mind. Many yoga classes focus on active asana and end with a five to ten minute Savasana, a time for rest and integration. Most students (including myself) are just starting to let go…
